I’m wondering if anyone has any advice on which sewing machine might be a good fit for me. I am new to sewing machines but have done quite a bit of hand sewing. I have a lot of passion for sewing, and want a sewing machine I can grow into. I’m looking to work with a variety of fabrics, so a sewing machine that can handle both heavy and sheer fabrics would be optimal. I haven’t found any that do both sheer and heavy, but here are some I’ve been considering:
Husqvarna Viking Emerald 116 or 118
Singer 7470 Confidence
Janome Sewist 500
I’ve been told to avoid Brothers because they break down easily.
Any suggestions? Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help!
